The Philadelphia Savings Fund Society Building, completed in 1932, was the first American skyscraper to employ the language of the International Style of architecture, which includes sleek lines, austere surfaces, and asymmetrical plans. Lloyd Ullberg's photograph of the building's windowless rear office tower highlights these features.
